It's time to empty the fridge.
Challenge Completed !! Last weekend, I found half a package of ground beef in my freezer and a small bundle of spinach in my fridge. And yes, I literally “found” them. Your boy is on a budget, as always. He needs to stock up his kitchen with as many on sales items as possible. I may not have a couch, a television, or even a chair, but my kitchen is always full of foods. Therefore, things always get lost in there someway somehow. Don’t get me wrong tho, I clean my fridge every single week, so there is no chance of food poisoning in your boy kitchen.
Anyway, back to half a package of ground beef and a small bundle of spinach, I challenged myself to make something nice out of it. I adapted my own saying in the creation process of this dish: “Leftover ingredients are the best for comfort foods” by Henry Luan – 2017. After a quick minute of consideration, I decided to make my favourite beef pasta. Luckily, I found a bag of Rigatoni pasta in my kitchen cabinet. Yes, it was random. Why? it was on sales. Budget on point !!
I’ve been developing this recipe for many years. I can’t remember when did and how did I learn how to make pasta sauce, but one thing I know for sure is that it has never disappointed me. The sauce base includes chopped onions, diced tomatoes, bay leaves, and basil leaves. The herbs in this recipe are definitely a must. It adds so much flavour to the dish and creates a really nice earthy smell. In addition, I love to add a spoonful of butter and a whole lot of pepper in my sauce when it almost finishes cooking. If you know me, you know I like a little bit of kick in my food.
